If an applicant has undergone clinical benchmarking previously would they need to be benchmarked again when applying for an ACF award?

Modified on Thu, 13 Jun 2019 at 10:17 AM

NIHR ACF recruitment guidance states that all applicants would need to undergo clinical benchmarking (If they are not an NTN/DRN holder in the specialty) during the opening of round 1 recruitment in order to be eligible for an ACF award. If this applicant has previously undergone clinical benchmarking for an award but did not take up a post and is not currently in a specialty training programme, then they would be required to undergo the full recruitment process, including benchmarking, in order to be eligible for an ACF post.
